The need for expansion, advancement and excellence in technology is projected by the lines directed outward of the triangle, the symbol of stability. Red signifies the determination of MSU-IIT in pursuing her programs while yellow radiates a bright future ahead.

History of MSU-IIT
The history of the Institute goes back to 1946 with the establishment of the Iligan High School (IHS). In 1956, the IHS was converted into the Lanao Technical School (LTS) under the Bureau of Vocational Education. In 1965, RA 4626 converted LTS into the Northern Mindanao Institute of Technology (NMIT). However, this law was not implemented. On July 12, 1968, RA No. 5363 integrated Lanao Technical School into the MSU System. During the 62nd meeting of the MSU Board of Regents on March 12, 1975, the first comprehensive reorganization plan for the Institute was approved under BOR Resolution No. 894, s. 1975. This plan made the Institute the first autonomous campus of the MSU System.

In the years that followed, MSU-IIT continually expanded and developed its academic programs. While doing so, it also enhanced research, infrastructure and cultural activities.
